Your Self Tanner FAQs Answered
We all know sunless tanning is a lot healthier alternative to keeping your summer glow year round. Plus it's apart of a lot of peoples weekly routine. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about our self tanning products to keep your tan perfect and glowing.
We get it and as a business owner and creator of LuxeBody, the line is developed for you in mind! Think about how long it takes you to put lotion all over your body - a few minutes right? It's about the same for our bronzing mousse and then add in a little look over in the mirror to make sure you didn't miss any spots (LuxeBody contains a bronzing guide to ensure you got everywhere) and you're good to go. Include it into your nightly routine, put on your pj's and hop into bed.
We'd like to thank 'Donald' for this and not sure where he shops but we ensure you that LuxeBody won't turn you orange. If you've experienced this in the past most likely you would have purchased something from your local drug store. Our product contains DHA which is derived from sugar cane and sugar beets and with the proper prep to your skin beforehand, you will only experience a bronzed glow.
The great thing about LuxeBody is that its buildable. We've created a product that is for light to medium skin tones and you can use as little or as much of the mousse as you'd like. We recommend that you use one coat and if you are afraid it might be too dark, stick with the one coat, let it process for 8 hours, shower and see how it looks. If you feel you can go a bit darker, add another layer of the mousse and repeat.
Absolutely, LuxeBody is designed for the face and body. Don't forget to purchase our mitts which come in a pack of 2 - one for the face and one for the body. Quick expert tip, keep it lighter than the skin and always avoid the upper lip. No one wants a tanned upper lip - trust us!
It does not so we highly recommend that if you are going out in the sun to please use sunscreen to protect your skin. No sunless tanning products contain sunscreen. Quick expert tip, use a sunscreen lotion as opposed to a spray, it keeps your sunless tan more moist and will last longer.
The million dollar question! With the LuxeBody tanning mitt, you should be able to reach the majority of your back but if you have a partner or roommate hanging around, maybe ask them to help. Don't forget that LuxeBody is for light to medium skin tones so we haven't created a product that is so dark that it'll be extremely noticeable.
If you plan on working out the day you're planning on apply your tan, make sure you workout beforehand. With our signature 8 hour solution you will want to refrain from working out until after your first rinse. Don't forget, the tanning solution is actually clear, the bronze you see when you apply is your guide to help you apply your tan evenly so it will never fully absorb into the skin and should be rinsed before you head in for a sweat session.
One of the most common questions people ask about applying our tan is “when can I shower after I tan?”. We recommend waiting the full 8 hours before you shower for the first time, but don’t wait more than 24 hours. When you shower for the first time after applying your tan, you’ll probably see some golden glow wash down the drain, but don’t worry! You’ll still look as bronzed as ever when you get out. This is just some of the extra solution washing off your skin. When we say wait 8 hours after you apply your tan, we also mean stay away from all moisture. This includes working out and sweating, moisturizing your skin, putting on liquid foundation, or anything else that might get your tan wet. These first few hours are super important as your tan develops and any excess moisture might prevent the solution from adhering to your skin properly.
The best time to apply your sunless tan is at night. Getting wet, sweating, rain and clothes can mess up your tan when it’s still setting into your skin, a process which can take eight hours to develop. We recommend adding in self-tanning to your evening routine for the best results.
* To preserve your tan, avoid swimming, long showers, baths, steam rooms, and saunas.* Don’t be afraid to “top off” your tan every few days to keep an even bronzed glow.
* Don’t exfoliate until you’re ready to say goodbye to your current tan and hello to your new one.
Double dip, we encourage it! Our tan is designed to be layered. Want a nice sun kissed glow, apply one layer of our tan all over the body. Looking for a more bronzed goddess glow? Let the first coat sit for about 5 mins and then apply another layer on. Our product is buildable so start off with a small amount and continue to layer.
Our self tanner last nearly 5-8 days (albeit with fading), only when given ample time to develop. .
